Well I’ve started this diet today. I needed to start this because my summer shorts don’t fit anymore! getting fat in the middle I suppose. The tell tale sign occurred with a pair of cargo shorts with a drawstring. I usually just untie it to go to the washroom, but sadly the buttons popped off as I sat down! On closer inspection of my waist line and the fact that 50% of my summer shorts don’t fit I learned it was time to do something about it rather than buy new clothes.
Been looking into proper dieting and it seems very difficult to appropriately portion your days (Especially when you have never done it before) so I’m here to endure 28 days of shakes with you all. I wouldn’t sound so negative bout the shakes (I usually like them) but I almost puked during my workout today. Somehow a combination of the HOT-ROX and breakfast shake, so I need to work on the timing.
It looks like many peoply have had amazing results, i notice quite a few of abandoned threads too and hope I will have the mental fortitude to stick to the diet. To that end, I have told my roomates and friends so that hopefully they will support it and more importantly will add a layer of accountability (sure as hell don’t want to be a quitter)
So I’ll check out some of everyones threads/posts to do my share of encouragement and, hopefully, find out how to keep these shakes down!
I’ll be doing the intermediate workout. I have been out of the gym for a couple months due to injury. When I got back last month I got the flu and thus haven’t been up to much all winter…
Will post some pics tonight and here is my starting stats
BF: 15.7% (7 point measurement by a pretty knowledgeable friend)
upper chest: 43"
arms: 14" -14"
legs: 23.5 -23.5"
ankles: 9" - 9"
Front Squat: 165x5,5,5,5* last set was weak…not to parallel…
Lat Pull Down: 165x5,5,4 155x3,3
DB Bench: 55x5,5,5,3,2
Ab Wheel: 5,5,5,5
Cant wait for next workout though! as its been a long winter on injury it feels good to be on a plan.
